low miles FBO Vargas stg2 08 335xi + warranty!

08 e90 335xi sport, titanium silver, with 47k, fully load!!!, every option but PDC.
I bought the car a year ago when it had 18k on it, 1 owner.

Its been a great car for me, i just think it's time for something bigger, 550 or s4 or x3. just seeing how much can i get.
I had the water pump, valve cover gasket and plugs replaced 2500 miles ago, the car runs like a champ. no CELs

MODs
Cobb AP v2, 3 bren protune maps inc e85 map. B3 tranns flash,
VR speed 7" FMIC, downpipes, AFE intake, Squared M193's 18x8.5 Wrapped in new eagle F1'S less than 600miles on them, stop tech cross drilled rotors and euro pads 4000miles ago.
brand NEW Vargas stg2s with billet wheels and NEW vr charge pipe, NEW walbro fuel pump sitting in a box waiting to get installed. and waiting to break 500hp.
oil changed ever 3000 miles, diff oil changed and break flushed 1500 miles ago and a WALNUT BLAST yesterday.


CON's
Minor hit from the back, it barely cracked the rear bumper..... drunk driver.... i have pictures it very minor, just replaced the bumper skin. all work done by CO's best body shop and all BMW parts. thanks to the other driver insurance company.
A few small rock chips on the bumper and a couple of small scratches all normal stuff. the car is pretty much flawless. very very clean in and out.
ill post pictures this weekend.


PRO's
Very well taken care of, never missed a service,all was taken to bmw dealer or ar design for mods, the car's value is $2100 over blue book. the car is warranted to 75k, it has 47k on it now and looks discreet, but sexy and it's shocking fast when you need it to be or it's quiet and smooth most of the time. what an awesome Dally driver, ready to go to the next level.

Not in a rush to sell and not sure if i want to sell it.
an s4 has a way bigger back seat and trunk, and handle's better.
And x3 the is awesome for size. already priced the pure turbo stage 2 upgrade lol

warranty is probably voided with all those mods. You need to find someone who really wants to buy a car with that many mods.

I ll sad somewhere between 25 k- 30 k . The hardest part is finding someone to buy a car with that many mods , most people will not even bother but there are some that want a car already done up.

it's an aftermarket warranty company, it's fully transferable and they just replace the water pump and front differential with all the upgrades.
They never send out an adjuster.
It's a pretty good warranty!

I see , if they are cool with mods then it is good.
If that is the case I would say you are probably closer to 30k. May be nice if you post a pick of your car to see condition.

At the end of the day pricing modified car is a tricky thing, it really depends how much you are willing to loose from your investment (mods) and how much do people really want your car. Personally I would not pay much more than 25 k just because at that price you can already buy used corvette and mustangs ( 2013 probably) that are already producing a lot of power and they have not been modified yet. You could even find a 2006-07 M3 around 30k.
A lot of people are scared of buying modified cars because they always think the previous owner abused it and now he does not want to pay for repairs.

Yeah, that car does not have the M Sport package, as we can see from the standard bumpers.

the ///M badge on the trunk takes 2g off the value of the car, it is documented on KBB

Haha for real.lol the car is clean but OP remove the "M-Sport package" from your description as it looks like you don't even know what car it is and potential buyers can be turned off when they see incorrect info.

if you really need to sell it then price it accordingly to your market, sounds like you already know what dealers charge so keep this in mind. Most buyers would go to the dealer and negotiate some warranty extension to make sure the car is sound plus if there is some hidden issue dealers will work with you to fix it at their cost (I did it and it was worth). Also keep in mind that mods are only worth to you and not to the new buyer, if anything they are deterrent as in most cases it indicates the car was raced a lot and abused (not saying most will abuse but there is always that percentage that do and then they let go the car).
oh and that M lol well others commented on that one already
